Training Overview Description

The Governor’s Council on Disabilities and Special Education received a five-year federal grant on Community Living with the overarching goal based on the Shared Vision: Alaskans will share a common system vision with the core precepts being that each person directs their own support plan based on their strengths and abilities, toward a meaningful life in their home, their job, and their community. One of the key strategies of this grant is to provide training on person-centered planning to care coordinators.

The focus of continued training has not been on the technical aspects of person-centered planning but on the philosophical framework – informed by the Shared Vision – of supporting people to truly lead the development of their support plan. This involves pushing back on the system’s medical model paradigm as well as the expectations of guardians and other team members.

Michelle Davidson, an advocate from Kenai, will co-facilitate the session. While some background information will be presented to set the context, this will be an opportunity for care coordinators to talk about the challenges and strategies for developing support plans that are truly person-centered.
